After working on the bottom or any other dirty job on your boat, please use the Wash Tub/Porta Potty Rooms to clean up. They are located in the rear corner of the office building or the Laundry Room located in the bathhouse. Both rooms have wash tubs with hot water. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE BATHROOM SINKS TO CLEAN UP AFTER BOTTOM PAINTING. The EPA forbids disposal of “wet” paint products in trash receptacles. To help facilitate the disposal of wet brushes, rollers, pans and cans, we have set up a drying bin located next to the bottom wash pit. Please place these materials in the bin to dry. Do not dispose of these products in our trash drums or dumpsters. Thank you for your co-operation.
For our customers who are planning to have us launch their boat this spring, we remind you that we schedule a specific number of boats each week. We recommend that you arrange for your launching at least 2 weeks prior to your anticipated launch week. Launching Work Orders are required to be prepaid. Arrangements for scheduling can be made over the phone with the use of a credit card. To check your boat for leaks when it is launched, we must have your cabin key or current combination. Mooring lines must be onboard and their location noted on your Work Order. Work ladders should be removed from cradles prior to your launching week.
BOTTOM PAINTING WORK ORDERS
If you arranged for our Service Department to paint your bottom, please advise Service of your launching date at least 3 weeks prior to your scheduled launch week. This will help to avoid any delay in launching while waiting for the paint to be applied.
If you are considering having our service department perform work on your boat this spring, we recommend that you avoid the rush and contact Brian or Joe about your service NOW. New work orders placed during the spring could experience up to a 3 week wait for completion.
DIESEL ENGINE SERVICE & PARTS
As a reminder, we are the regional Parts and Service Center for Yanmar, Universal, Westerbeke and Beta diesel engines. Let our professionally trained and friendly staff help you with your service and parts needs.
SHRINK WRAP RECYCLING DUMPSTER
A dumpster will be located in the Visitors Parking lot, next to the office entrance gate. Please feel free to dispose of any paper, glass, cans or plastic materials. General garbage or organic materials should be disposed of in the marina containers. Starting in April a larger recycling dumpster will be in place for shrink wrap materials. This recycling dumpster will be available through the month of May. If for some reason the container is filled, leave your shrink wrap next to the receptacle. Please do not dispose of shrink wrap in any of the other trash containers. Your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.
As a reminder, if you are hiring a private contractor to perform work on your boat (canvas, engine, cleaning, etc.), please let the office know. We need your authorization to allow anyone to board your boat and release your keys to them. Please advise your contractor that our insurance company requires that all outside private contractors have a current Certificate of Liability Insurance on file at our office. This is a requirement for everyone’s protection.
GATE ACCESS CARD REMINDER
Please remember to bring your gate access card each time you come to the marina. Remember the gate card is for your use ONLY. Unauthorized use of a card could result in gate access privileges being terminated. Please allow vehicles entering the marina the right of way. Maryland Marina will not be responsible for damages to vehicles or vessels caused by the gate as a result of tailgating. Always use your card to enter and exit the marina.
Water service will be activated, weather permitting, according to the following schedule. Dry Storage Areas and Pier A: by March 20th (water outlets on the building are active all the time) Piers 2 – 8: by April 15th.. Hot Water: Available year-round in the Wash Tub/Porta Potty room in the rear corner of the office building and in the laundry room located in the bathhouse.
